Those who are having trouble with the Ultimate database may want to try it through www.archive.org. That way you could probably search a past copy--may not be helpful for those interested in the current chart--but may help with earlier charts.
BTW: Still working on the Class of 1982 chart project, now working on the Nov 1979 charts. Will keep you updated.

This song was mentioned recently in a post on the #41 peaking songs thread. It was second of 2 straight that peaked at that position for Scandal, "Beat of a Heart". And there were no more singles released by the band. Patty's marriage to John McEnroe might have had something to do with that.
BTW, Mac gets mentioned in the story for the #1 song. Cracked me up when Casey told us what Jimmy Connors had to say to Gary Richrath and Kevin Cronin, "As far as your tennis is concerned, I love your music".

My first choice was "Never Enough" by Patty Smyth but we heard her with Scandal last week. Instead here is Ratt with one of their 6 chart singles, all of which I am quite familiar with so may not be all that lost. Big hair bands were big in the late 80s, very early 90s but these guys could only hit the top 40 before then for some reason.

WE have been rocking the last few weeks so now it's time for a song that is played on the R&B oldies station in my area. It's Midnight Star and a song that peaked at 81. Their next release would reverse those numbers BTW.
Hmmmmm. I'll take the honors with this week's April 27, 1985 Classic.
The #1 song on the Dance & Disco chart for the second (and last) week in a row. Yeah, we're all familiar with the version that hit #5 two years (and three summers) later, but what about the one that reached the summit of the dance world those two spring weekends ago?

In part since I heard this on the local R&B oldies station last night, here is another song by the Mary Jane Girls who are really a one hit wonder and that hit was heard on last week's show. Last minute and a half is a sax solo so if you like sax, you will like this one...
